In July, Action Bronson (“Blackbird”) and Raekwon (“Keep It Politics”) kicked off the second installment of Chicago label Closed Sessions’ eponymous singles series. Today, Brooklyn’s Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire drops the collection’s latest track, “Lost In Transition”.
Recorded during the MC’s first trip to Chicago and shortly before he signed to Universal, the song captures a unique moment in his career, one where he’s stuck between hungry newcomer and becoming the dominant force he’s capable of (“They smilin’ in your face/They offerin’ you deals/Fuck ’em/I don’t trust ’em/I will snuff ’em/O-G said , ‘Young boy keep runnin'”).
In addition to the single, each rapper is spotlighted in a short documentary, and you can watch the piece on eXquire below. A compilation comprising the Closed Sessions Vol. 2 singles will be released on August 30th via Closed Sessions/SoundScape Studios.
